    I was really impressed by this issue. "Apartment on Copernicus Street" is quiet and layered and I want to go back for another read to tease out the things I missed. Interesting premise and excellent writing. "The Red House" took me to a place that was unexpected but greatly appreciated. I also loved reading the interview with Lisa L. Hannett and Angela Slatter! Stellar issue.

    I enjoyed "Monday's Child" though I was unsettled by a couple of odd POV shifts mid-scene, and I wasn't completely convinced by the strange man's character (I won't give his name away). The concept was fascinating and the character of Monday was well-written. The climax was fabulous. "Where Colossi Sleep" was slow-moving and I found myself skipping over paragraphs of description. Baker writes some beautiful sensory description but too much slows down the narrative to the point where I lose the thread of the actual story. It hinted at some cool backstory which I would have liked to see developed more or at least given more space instead of the scene setting.
